Mexico abolishes slavery in Texas (or tries)

Texas on the Potomac, an interesting blog from the Houston Chronicle, has an entry today in their excellent “Today in Texas History” series noting that on September 15, 1829, Mexico abolished slavery. Texans resisted President Vicente Ramon Guerrero’s decree and Texas was later exempted from the ban on slavery. However, the colonists remained distrustful that Mexico would again impose their ban on slavery.
